everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and
of convenience. the enemy of my enemy is my friend. right now, barack obama is their biggest enemy. they're tolerating mitt romney. they already assume mitt romney is on the wrong side of every issue including this one. i don't think this flip-flop affects them. they hate romney and obama more. that's all that matters until the day after the election when we'll see them turn on romney in a big way. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: you mean when he loses. right? >> absolutely. >> jennifer: okay. >> they'll turn on him. >> jennifer: either way. >> right now they're pretending to like him but that's not going to last after he's a loser. >> jennifer: so there is the daily kos blog post today that actually talks about what disaster relief would be like in romney's world this, in fact, he were to push it down to the private sector. let's say that romney gets elected. what would a privatized fema look like? >> there's two possibilities. they're both complete disasters. the first would be to actually truly privatize it. you pay for pr
-- that are scheduled. so 17 events. obama has six events in ohio. you can see where his priorities -- three in wisconsin. two in colorado. iowa has one and one in nevada, virginia new hampshire and florida. that's all right? is that where you would be telling them to spend -- >> he wins ohio, he wins. i don't see there's any path for romney to win this without ohio. >> jennifer: if romney won everything else -- >> he could win everything else but it makes it almost impossible for him. i would be in ohio. i would be in virginia. i would be in iowa. >> jennifer: would you be in north carolina joe? >> no. >> jennifer: really? >> yeah. >> jennifer: even though early voting is -- what about florida? >> no. i would spend more time -- >> jennifer: 2 points up. >> you can block -- you know, you force the other campaign to spend money. you keep it tight and it is a chance -- there's absolutely no way he can get florida. >> the thing about this race which i've never seen before in the five presidential races i've worked on, the
an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, chris christie. it's time to start talking about the president's chances in florida on tuesday. we're ju
. >> eliot: look guys, i think that's exactly right. i think chris christie and president obama big winners here. mitt romney gnashing his teeth but folks know what needs to be done. i don't want to impugn him. he's just in a tough bind right now. i want to pivot if we might. i want to talk about something that we don't talk often enough which is the united states senate races. some of the races that have been close, in particular virginia, missouri. which way do you think the senate ends up going. >> the two that you cited virginia and missouri, i see them trending towards the democrats. and mc mccatskill drew the best opponent possible in todd akin. she's going to survive in a single digit victory. i don't think much is going to change with the united states senate. i think the republicans will net some seats. i think the democrats will win back massachusetts. i think they'll probably get maine and maybe one other indiana, where richard murdoch made those comments about rape and abortion. he's in big trouble in a state that should be saved. i think the senate should be a wash. republicans
dollars. >> yeah. it's a potential. >> jennifer: if it is not a swing state, who knows. >> that's right. >> jennifer: chris lehane thank you so much. how optimistic are you for president obama winning this election, as optimistic as when i came in here a couple of days ago predicting the giants would win the world series.

silver's number from the new york times that we just talked about that president obama has a 74.4% chance of being reelected, it does seem curious, right? if this race is so close, why does nate silver give the president such a high chance of winning? well it could be the president's strong on the ground machine. it could be the obama momentum, or it just could be what is happening in the economy. now mitt romney said in an economic speech today that he is about real change big change and the president, he says is about the status quo. >> romney: our campaign is about big things because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. this election is a choice a choice between the status quo, going forward with the same policies of the last four years, or instead choosing real change. >> jennifer: now the dictionary definition of status quo means the existing state of affairs. and here is what the economic state of affairs looks like under president obama. in this case status quo means movement, progress you want evidence? okay. it was announced today
because the president has been making himself available. >> right. >> jennifer: and one of the things he did today was he went to an interview with mtv. and i want you to listen to what the president said today about gay marriage. >> obama: for us to try to legislate federally into this area is probably the wrong way to go. >> jennifer: now there were some on the left who were critical of that -- of those statements. do you think -- how do you think that is going to play with the gay democrats who have been really supportive of the president. >> i don't think they will be too happy about it. but what is their choice? this is a president who supports marriage equality, and the initiatives that are going to bring marriage equality to states, and the department of justice has been remarkable in the fight to overturn doma so i think he's on the right side here, even if he is not moving quite quickly enough. it is a much better choice than mitt romney who held secret meetings with gay republicans at a farm in virginia, and it was not a closet in the superbs, where he ap
terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million more oil barrels under president obama's first three years than under the last three years of george w. bush. 75% increase in drilling rigs from 29 to 2011. u.s. oil production at the highest level since 1997. and most permits for deep water drilling since '07 even though we had the bp disaster happen on his watch. you're not going to outdrill. you're not going to out-coal president obama. how is it that climb climate change working for president obama? would you brag about it? why do they do it, it's the money, lebowsky, of course it's the money. look at how much the oil company spent, $167,000 spent every day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30 worth of tax breaks that they get from the american people. and finally where did the money go? it wen
. but is he ready to lead? >> it is probably a plus for obama but this election is pitting cache against cash as billionaires pump the big bucks into romney's campaign, it remains to be seen what celebrity currency can buy. >> jennifer: all right everybody. that's it for our show tonight. thank you so much for joining us here in "the war room." you have a great night.
